Dorothy Lamour hosted this 1948-49 variety show that obtained some of the best guests in radio including: Abbott and Costello; Jimmy Stewart, Jack Benny, Lum and Abern; Bob Hope; Martin and Lewis, and Boris Karloff. Includes the infamous Shamrock Hotel broadcast.

A Great Find
These shows are another great find, especially the show from March 17, of 1948 not because it was a Saint Patricks day show but because it lets you hear what happened back in the days of a live radio remote, it's great to hear the engineers at NBC on the telephone trying to find out why the program wasn't reaching the network.

Another side of Lamour
Higher quality than the usual variety mix. I'd always thought of Lamour in her typical slinky sexy roles, but she shows real comedy skill in this series.
